Architecture Talk & Walk

How did the Amsterdam canals come about? Which areas of the harbour were transformed in the 90s? Who is H.P. Berlage? Where are the Floating homes? Find out Fridays at 1.30 PM! 

Architecture Centre Amsterdam introduces you to the history and future of Amsterdam architecture during a lecture and guided tour. Short in time? It is also possible to attend the Architecture Talk or Walk only.

Architecture Talk
Our Architecture Talk offers a 45-minute introduction lecture to Amsterdam’s rich architectural history. One of our in-house historians will unravel the city’s urban structure from its earliest foundations up until the most recent developments. The Architecture Talk will enhance your understanding of the city’s unique urban fabric and will make you familiar with the Dutch capital’s most significant buildings. Coffee & tea included!

Architecture Walk
Our Architecture Talk is followed by a guided tour. The two hour Architecture Walk is organised by architour, a local organizer of professional architecture tours. You will discover the architectural highlights in the area, such as the National Maritime Museum, the Central Library and the A’DAM Tower. The tour ends at the iconic EYE Film Museum after a scenic ferry ride crossing the IJ river.

For who?
The Architecture Talk & Walk is perfect for architecture lovers who are keen to learn more about the unique history of Amsterdam. We often welcome international architects, student groups and culture-minded tourists. However the Architecture Talk & Walk is also a great opportunity for locals to learn more about their hometown. 
Jeffrey, New York (USA): “I took the Crash Course in Amsterdam Architecture and then the tour of the IJ — new northern part of Amsterdam. This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Guide was an expert, personable and approachable.”
